Remonstrants a name given to the ARMINIANS SEE ARMINIANS (q.v.) by reason of a remonstrance which, in 1610, they made to the States of Holland against the decree of the Synod of Dort, which condemned them as heretics. Episcopius and Grotius were at the head of the Remonstrants. The Calvinists presented a counter-address, and were called Contra- remonstrants.
